Nicola & Vito's Winter Wedding at Turnberry

Nicola's desire was simple; to create a wedding so good that it would be remembered for years to come.

Wedding Design Concept

We were truly delighted to design and plan this wedding for Nicola and Vito who are a real fun-loving couple. The whole wedding was based around having a great time and so incorporated lots of entertainment and of course, stunning design.

The colour scheme for the wedding breakfast held in the Turnberry Suite was black and ivory. We used our own ivory Duchess Satin chair covers and tablecloths with bespoke black Velvet napkin bands and chair wraps with diamante buckles. We also made special matching covers for her vases of cream roses.

Half of the tables were styled with Crystal Candelabras surrounded with small floral displays and half with the large floral displays surrounded by Black Ribbed Nitelight Holders.

All tables were covered with a scattering of cream rose petals.  We accessorised the tables with a Clear Glass Charger Plate, Black Vintage Damask pocket napkin with personalised menu and black velvet designer napkin wrap.

The main evening celebration was in the Caledonia Suite and we created a completely different look totally geared around a party atmosphere.  Lots of black starcloth was installed all around the room to cover every inch of the walls. 

The room was washed with beautiful colour from a purpose built lighting truss. A purple LED bar added yet more glam to the occasion.  Poseur Tables and three foot tables were used to create casual seating, covered with Black Chic Linen for a glamorous look.

Wedding Entertainment

Nic and Vito were set on providing a visual and auditory feast for their guests and so we put a lot of thought into creating an entertainment show that would elevate this wedding to an extremely high level. Quite simply, this wedding was filled with great entertainment from start to finish.

Highlights included a string quartet and choir for the church, including an amazing rendition of Beyonce’s song, Halo for when they signed the register.  During the drinks reception guests were treated a surprise performance from 4 Poofs and a Piano.  They had written a special song for the bride and groom and we had t-shirts printed with the couples face on, just like they used to do on The Jonathan Ross BBC show.

We also integrated a special voiceover created to welcome everyone into dinner. As it was X-Factor final night we had the familiar X-Factor voiceover man welcome the bride and groom to their seats which was a fantastic hit amongst the guests.

Nicola and Vito understood the power of great entertainment and how important it was to make their wedding one that would be talked about for years to come. Here’s a complete rundown of the various acts they had at their wedding:

  • 8 person choir at the church
  • String quartet for the reception
  • Four Poof’s & A Piano (YES! Jonathan Ross’s ex house band from his BBC show)
  • Top Sinatra/Rat Pack interpreter Andrew Beasley and his swing band
  • Legendary covers band, Big Bern & The Shootahs
  • A solo soul diva belting out Motown hits
  • Top London DJ for house party
  • A stunning fireworks show to end the night


The wedding ended with an amazing fireworks display set to  “A Moment Like This” by Leona Lewis. Everyone watched from the balcony of the hotel overlooking the sea which was a perfect spot to see the fireworks over the whole town.
